    Default Clown behavior?

    My little clown has taken to doing what ever it is clowns do to nems but only she's doing it with my Acan Enchinata. Will this hurt my Acan?

    I have two clowns that host the same mushroom and it is doing just fine!

    Yes but you can also put a mushroom through a blender and it won't die!

    She does get kind a rough-I mean she really rubs on it-maybe if I move the Acan she'll find something else? Why do clowns do this anyways?

    Interesting, it sounds like you have one clown. It could be wearing down the Enchinata, but they grow back quickly. My clowns host the back wall and lay eggs there.
